The Cheyenne Police Department was called to 215 Stinson Ave. at 5:04 p.m. on July 16, 2015 after receiving reports of suspicious circumstances regarding a woman running from the residence and stating the occupant had a gun.
Saige Hack, 23, of Cheyenne, was the sole occupant of the house and as CPD officers approached the door of the residence, Hack opened the door and fired at the officers with a pistol.
The two officers returned fire and observed Hack enter the house. Neither officer was injured and it is unclear if they struck Hack when returning fire. At this time, there is no clear motive for why Hack shot at the officers. The SWAT team was deployed and negotiators made multiple attempts to contact Hack. Upon obtaining a search warrant, the SWAT team entered the residence and observed Hack, unmoving inside of the house. Paramedics entered the residence and were unable to resuscitate Hack.
Because the incident resulted in PD officers firing their weapons, the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is conducting the investigation regarding Hack’s death. The cause of Hack’s death will be determined upon the completion of DCI’s investigation
